Re: Have you experienced weight gain on Seroquel?
      03/08/09 11:17 AM

Eight months to gain the weight and even a strict diet of 1500 calories a day didn't shake the pounds off. I also take Respiridone, Depakote and Lyrica which cause weight gain. I think I am going to ask my pscyh if I can cut back to just 150 mg of imipramine for my depression and 200 mg of Lyrica for the peripheral neuropathy until I get my weight under control.

What do you think? As long as I don't become suicidal or have delusions that people are plotting against me as I did befire Seroquel, Respiridone and Depakote, shouldn't I be fine in cutting them out while I shed these pounds? I really would like to be fit at 175 rather than chubby with a muffin top at 202.

It's to be in the mid-70's today her in LA and I would really like to be able to wear jeans and a T without feeling like the Michellin Man.
